* ''VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad'': You can find some "Copy Ability Scrolls" from certain treasure boxes in the game; each of them enhances one of your copy ability, usually in the form of giving you one extra move.

* A crucial component of ''VideoGame/TheSpellcastingSeries'', as Ernie Eaglebeak can't cast a thing unless he's got his SpellBook in his hands. Any new spells he finds automatically transfer right onto the pages - unless you forgot to bring it, in which case, [[LostForever the spell flies off into space]], and [[{{Unwinnable}} you get to look for the 'load save' button.]]

* Ash in ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'' needs a particular spellbook to get home: The Necronomicon. You know, [[ArtifactOfDoom the same book that awakened the Kandarian demons]] in the previous ''Franchise/EvilDead'' movies.
* The film ''Film/HocusPocus'', where the book apparently had some degree of sentience (it had a moving eye and eyelid). It had apparently been given to the witches by the Devil and was made of human skin.

** Single pages from incomplete copies of the Book of Skelos sometimes also find their way into sorcerers' hands. These usually contain a spell or two, or the true name of a powerful demon. According to Thoth-Amon, at least one incomplete copy exists in Kheshatta, the Stygian City of Magicians. The Book of Skelos is also referred to as the Iron-Bound Book of Skelos. On a small island in the Western Ocean far to the west of the coast of Stygia, the lore of the Black Coast claim that demons guard the bones of the long-dead mage Skelos. It is believe to be inspired by the [[CthulhuMythos Necronomicon]].

** Spell tomes existed in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' as DLC. Before this you had to buy the spell from a vendor, who presumably taught you the spell or beamed it directly into your brain.

* Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Necronomicon'' is often used as an example, and in his short story "The Dunwich Horror" Wilbur Whately needs a complete copy because his version is missing a key formula. With his hearty approval, other weird fiction writers of his era used the name, which Lovecraft thought helped make it feel realy. It has even appeared in book catalogs and library records.
* The Book of Skelos is sought by sorcerers throughout [[ConanTheBarbarian the Hyborian world]]. Within the pages of this forbidding book are spells and incantations to bring the dead to life, control the elements, and to summon extraterrestrial demons from the Outer Darkness, the black gulfs of space, and the pits of Arallu. In Conan's age, only three complete copies are known to exist: one is beneath a royal crypt of Aquilonia (probably guarded by the priests of Mitra), another in a remote temple in jungled Vendhya. The third copy was found by pirates on the Nameless Isle, below an idol of the toad-god Tsathoggua, and brought to Thoth-Amon, master of the Black Ring.

* ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' in Creator/CSLewis' ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'': Lucy goes inside a magician's house to find a Spell Book so she can make some invisible opponents visible. She's tempted to cast some of the spells for her own benefit (and does so once, to her regret).

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': The Tomegathericon in the second game gives the user a unique class with various "evil" spells such as summoning demons and hellfire (shame the balance is heavily skewed towards AttackAttackAttack). The name is a double ShoutOut: to the Necronomicon, obviously, but also to Tau Mega Therion, the Greek name for the biblical Beast of the Apocalypse.

* ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'': The Book of Thoth is a purchasable item for Mages or Guardians that allows them to stack up mana and magic power as they kill minions or other Gods. Later on, the owner of the book, Thoth, becomes playable as a mage who uses the book to read up and launch spells from there.
